Service was excellent, food was a bit salty. Eclectic but confident menu, great deserts, limited new world wine selection.

Nice ambiance, but dirty flatware, rude servants and below average food. I had the pineapple gazpacho which was rather bleak with an unpleasant aftertaste and the blackened salmon tacos which were soaked in frying oil and cheap taco-like seasoning. Edible, but far from the pleasant...More
